COLLECTORS will help our members to implement best practice waste collection systems.

COLLECTORS is working with cities, municipalities and regions to collect data on waste collection systems which address any or all of the following waste streams:
  • paper and packaging waste
  • waste electronic and electrical equipment
  • construction and demolition waste

This data will be used to develop a comprehensive database of 252 collection systems, which will then be made available to cities, municipalities and regions to search when they are considering improvements to their waste collection systems. The data will also be used to identify 12 best practice case studies which will be developed in greater detail, to support cities in decision-making.

Best practices are shared through several capacity-building activities open to city officers, including workshops and webinars, to further increase the level of technical and operational expertise among waste experts.
Evidence gathered by COLLECTORS will be used to develop policy recommendations which will be discussed at an event at the end of the project. It will also be used by the working group on waste and form the basis of our policy lobbying across the EU.
